with Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes. 101 mins + trailers.
Judi Dench gets a rewardingly complex role in British theatre director Trevor Nunn’s expertly crafted historical thriller. Inspired by the life of British KGB agent Melita Norwood, it casts Dench as Joan, a retiree unexpectedly charged with providing Cold War intelligence to Russia. Seamlessly transporting the viewer between Joan’s past and her present, Red Joan explores the intimate effects of espionage on an individual life – bolstered by excellent performances from both Dench and Sophie Cookson (who plays Joan’s younger self) – at a time of new Russian threats to the West.
